Stand Against Bigotry and For American Values in the 2016 Election

Posted on August 07, 2015 in Action Alerts

As you know, seventeen candidates running for the Republican Party nomination debated last night. The good news is that most discussed issues. The bad news is at least four chose to resort to tired bigotry to appeal to voters.

A debate of ideas is welcomed – hatred and bigotry are not.

It’s time to take action. The approach we’ve taken is to track these statements and call on these officials to repudiate and apologize for them. But, some of the most egregious offenders are not going to apologize – indeed they’re doubling down on their bigotry. We must work to change the idea that this kind of speech is a way to attract voters, and instead ensure that statements like these become a liability for the candidates and their parties.

Please contact Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus and politely ask him to help uphold the principles of equality on which our nation was founded by raising our concerns with each of the candidates.
